Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the lower back that you have described is likely to be due to a muscular pain. Since a swelling is there at the site of pain, it is best to get yourself physically examined and X-rayed to find out the cause.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Thanks for writing to us.
The muscle stiffness in your back and the breathing problem may be related to a muscle spasm . A physical examination is necessary to find out the exact cause.
You need to consult an orthopedician for examination of swelling. The treatment usually involves rest with pain killers in combination with the muscle relaxants along with good physiotherapy exercises.
Meanwhile you can do a hot fomentation and apply a local analgesic gel on the area to relieve the spasm.
Wishing you good health...

Kindly consult a spine specialist, get examined and X-rays done . It is difficult to make definitive diagnosis merely on brief history,but rule out a cold abscess (tubercular)
